discussion which gets to the base of the transparency, patient outcomes, choice and patient in the government. i have lived in d.c. for a while, and i know politicians are not going to fix health care. we doctors are not going to do it. the insurance companies are not going to do it. it's great to be the patient. we have to give them good information. 60% of new yorkers are looking at new restaurants, track records before they go there. why do they have to walk in national health care blind about what the hospital section is for the bounce back rate or how many operations the do or how many operations they do. if you have lyme disease and want to go to a hospital, that is -- you are the only case in five years that the scene or do you want to go to a hospital that treats 50 cases a year? these are basic things the public demands and in any other industry i think that we can provide these things in health care through more transparency. >> host: so that leads me to the -- use the term fred flintstones care in your book. talk a little bit more about that. and what are your thoughts about how th
